In a groundbreaking stride toward fintech evolution, Archie, a trailblazing fintech acceleration partner, has emerged on the scene. The firm is set to reshape the landscape by nurturing the upcoming generation of fintech disruptors who will redefine and lead the industry.
Architected with a vision that extends beyond financial support, Archie is poised to join forces with a select portfolio of global early-stage fintechs. Their mission: to turbocharge these fintech pioneers through intellectual capital and growth expertise, effectively boosting their journey from startups to robust high-growth businesses.
Renowned serial fintech entrepreneur, Anthony Thomson and global tech and fintech leader, Steve Brennen. Their combined expertise, fueled by years of successfully founding and scaling global giants such as Uber, eBay, and Atom Bank, forms the cornerstone of Archie’s innovative model.
Anthony Thomson, Co-Founder and Chair of Archie, expressed the urgency of tailored support, saying, “Archie will change that. Our team is perfectly positioned to offer the real hands-on, senior support they need. And crucially, provide it now, with it being more important than ever for fintechs to use resources in the right way. The Archie model means our years’ of global expertise are embedded and our interests aligned – creating partners out of practitioners and ensuring founders and their fintechs reach the heights they should.”
Steve Brennen, Co-Founder and Archie CEO, emphasized their hands-on approach to scaling, saying, “Realising your dream and building a fintech isn’t easy. But truly scaling one is even harder. The Archie team has been there and done it, got the scars and the t-shirt. We have the know-how, expertise and experience of scaling global businesses. We’ll be able to parachute in and help founders develop and implement Go-To-Market strategies, avoiding the pitfalls and levering Archie’s deep experience in strategy, marketing, sales & governance across tech and fintech, as well as accessing the ARCHIE NETWORK to ensure access to the right talent, partners and finance.”
Archie’s innovative model, founded on an ‘equity first’ principle, aims to accelerate fintech growth through intellectual capital investment, operational support, access to a stellar network, and senior board advisors. Their unique approach will kick-start a series of launch events throughout 2023, with the first set in Dubai on September 12, 2023.
